Regensburg Cathedral was built from 1275 on a former Romanesque cathedral building which burned down twice in 1272 and 1273. The new cathedral is a masterpiece of the Gothic style, comparable to Cologne Cathedral. Moreover, like the latter, the cathedral was redecorated in the neo-Gothic style in the 19th century.

The pilgrimage church of Maria Hilf was founded in 1984 as a chapel of the Capuchin monastery of Neumarkt. Due to the popularity of the chapel as a pilgrimage destination, a baroque church was built on the site from 1718 to 1727, its tower was completed later in 1757. After a period of decline in the 19th century due to the departure of the Capuchins in 1802, the church was restored as a place of pilgrimage by the Carmelites who founded a monastery nearby in 1907.
